Stop Diabetes
Step out: Walk to Stop Diabetes
Alexza will be taking part in Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes, which will benefit the mission of the American Diabetes Association: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. There are 25.8 million American children and adults living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and there is no cure for this disease. We need to do what we can to Stop Diabetes®. So, join us and thousands of walkers on October 20th at San Jose, CA - Guadalupe River Park.

Alexza Pharmaceuticals employees are also encouraged to discover new ways that the company can provide to the local community or other larger philanthropic programs.

Clinical trial data indicate that Alexza’s unique Staccato technology generates consistent distribution of aerosolized drug particles of 1 to 5 microns (the ideal size for absorption in deep lung tissue), providing peak plasma concentrations as quickly as an intravenous injection and rapid onset of therapeutic relief.
